... how much I was craving it!. We all piled our plates up (no surprise) and went back for seconds (maybe thirds!). It was so good! After dinner, everybody was playing different drinking games which was really fun. We played games such as 13 (basically 21), thumper, and many more!

The icing on the cake however had to be seeing a shark! It was a Reef Shark and while it posed us no threat (it was only a baby) it could be a deadly hunter if ...
... for years, as apparently the insurance costs outweighed any future profits and restoration of the resort, Koala Adventure Company came along and decided to use this empty, abandoned resort for backpackers... As we don't really give a rat's bum about luxury! If it's cheap and clean (well, reasonably), we'll stay anywhere! It was as if we were all starring in a horror/thriller film.... Staying overnight on this big stormy island, alone, in an abandoned resort... ...
